Pak Vs SA: Cricket Commentator Mistakes Dwarves For Children In A Hilarious On-Air Blunder

In a bizarre yet funny happenstance across the world, Nine Network cricket commentator Mark Nicholas is in the news for making an absolute fool of himself. 

While being on the panel for the third and final Test match between Pakistan and South Africa in Johannesburg, the English commentator mistook dwarves for children and went on about commenting on the way they were playing cricket, quite endearingly might I add.

The blunder was committed during the second day's play when South Africa was batting in the first innings. During the break, two dwarves were shown playing the game on the grass banks, where one was bowling to another who was using a miniature bat.

When the camera zoomed towards them playing, Nicholas got super excited and probably thought he's spied on a bowling prodigy in the making, as the dwarf who was bowling, was using a rather advanced technique, to send down some left-arm spinning.

This is what he said:

“Okay well, it's important to start young. Look at this … spin it. Oh, I like that!”

Even though the camera was zoomed into the dwarves enjoying a mild game of cricket at the time, Nicholas couldn't figure who they were. He probably thought some very talented kids are bowling a decent delivery, with left-arm spin bowling! 

All this while, Nicholas's fellow commentator Kevin Pietersen was left in splits because Nicholas just couldn't figure the right from the wrong.

The audience present for the match obviously found his foot-in-mouth rather funny and took to Twitter immediately and couldn't stop tweeting about it. 

One actually said, “Mark Nicholas puts his foot in it... they're dwarfs not babies,”. 

Well, yes, Nicholas, try and distinguish dwarfs from babies and if you can't maybe you need bifocal lenses to see things rather clearly?
